MIT Motorsports 2006 Car

MIT FSAE 2006 car

The 2006 racing season started with an extremely ambitious redesign of the entire car. The team made use of its accumulated experience to make a fresh, innovative design and followed it up with vigorous manufacturing, again building on years of experience. The elimination of the rear box, new wheel designs and all around attention to detail led to acheiving the team's weight goal of 450 pounds. Other special items like a custom ECU and tuned intake and exhaust really made the design stand out. Thanks to the use of the waterjet and other economical manufacturing options the design also broke new ground for the team in the area of cost. Due to mechanical failures, the team was unfortunately unable to finish the endurance event.
